Printers
-Hi, I'm Justin Yu, Associate Editor for CNET.com with the first look at the HP Envy 100 touch screen web-connected printer. The Envy 100 demonstrates innovative design with both the hardware and the software, so you'll notice that it lacks exposed paper trays and a bulky display that are common with other printers. The scanner lid has a dotted pattern for style, and the top loading cartridge bay is hidden behind streamlined doors that fold flush into the unit. The whole thing is very unobtrusive. Our only complaint is that it only holds 80 sheets of paper at a time, but it's a worthy tradeoff for the low profile footprint. In terms of connectivity, the back of the printer only has a single USB port and no Ethernet, but HP recommends using the 802.11 b/g/n wireless print server inside. That way, you could take advantage of ePrint Center, or HP's online app store that lets you download apps for free directly on the touch screen. The apps offer one-touch access to printed content like services from Bing Maps, myrecipes.com, greeting cards, tickets, Facebook photos, and more. The other half of ePrint Center is ePrint itself. It's HP's answer for mobile devices like iPad and smart phones that don't have a USB port to print directly from a computer. Instead, ePrint lets you send jobs directly to the printer using a unique e-mail address assigned to each printer HP ships out. And we ran into several speed bumps updating the firmware on the printer, but once we were up and running, we actually enjoyed using ePrint. You can attach documents, photos, and PDFs to any device that has access to e-mail, and you can even setup a list of verified centers to allow in a private network if you're worried about spam. And here's the part where we complain. We're disappointed this $250 printer uses the same two-ink cartridge bay as other HP models at half the price. Both the image quality and print speed suffer as a result, ironic considering HP encourages you to print more and spend more no their consumables in the process. So we wouldn't buy this printer for its image quality, but the convenience of ePrint and the potential of the ePrint online app store earn our recommendation. So you can read more details on the full review on CNET.com, but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. This is the HP Envy 100 printer and that sounds good to me.
